Re: F1.2 pro glass

I’m not sure I agree that the differences in dof are slight.

It does depend on your particular use case, but for me doing street photography of small groups of people around 12-15’ away, 17mm at f1.2 gives around 18” dof, while f1.8 is around 5’. In terms of subject isolation that’s usually closer to ‘major’ than ‘slight’ in my view.

Too much Oly gear.
Panasonic 12-32, 12-35, 15. Laowa 7.5.
Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70 & a Sony A7S.
